    besides the normal stuff (crescent wrench, metric sockets, breaker bar, channel locks, flashlight) can you think of anything else that came in handy in an emergency repair situation (repair on your truck). i understand that our trucks are known for their dependability, however it is best to prepair for the worst. thanks.

    Nothing... It's a 2009 and i better not need to carry tools. But after a few years i am sure it'll be a socket set at least.

    I keep a seat cushion handy. Works as a jack base in soft terrain, and as protection from the hot ground if on the street.

    I keep a rifle in the cab. It can really help in a break down if your way out in the middle of nowhere. also a tire plug kit and compressor, a multimeter and electrical tape and a tow strap. That's about it. anything major beyond that and I'd rather just get a free tow home. I'm a member of AAA for more than the maps.

    I have the basic wrenches and jumpers and standard stuff.

    Because we know that your trucks were built better than ours and we choose not to feel inferior in your presence. Now go away.

    ^I agree. That's the only reason I didn't buy one back in the day, too small. Other than that, I'd probably still be driving it right now.
